You undoubtedly have some questions about your situation. Here are some answers to common questions:
How soon do I have to file a lawsuit claim after my injury?
Each state has different rules on this, but all states have time limits for filing a claim, which means that time is of the essence. The deadlines also differ depending on the type of case you are filing. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases requires injured persons to file their lawsuits by three years from the date of the injury. (N.C. Gen. Stat. section 1-52). It is vital to file in this three year period, or you will lose your right to compensation.
What kind of damages can I recover in my personal injury case?
The damages you may be able to recover include:
- Medical expenses (past & future)
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages (past & future)
- Lost earning capacity
- Punitive damages
- Loss of consortium (injury to a marital relationship)
What is contributory negligence?
Contributory negligence is when the business or person you are filing against claims that you are at least partially at fault for causing your injury. In North Carolina, if proven, contributory negligence will prevent you from recovering anything for your injuries.
